In These Troubled Times... they say, SMILE!  Even if others can't see it, smile!  From A Gnome, A Candle, And Me:


 I made it a point

To smile one day

despite what’s all around.

Grousing vanished,

moaning faded,

and complaining walked away.


No matter what,

I could see beyond

to glimpse the inner core

and that was a smile indeed.


After a while

those happy in their grief

stood further away,

and I had a marvelous day.


Guess who was grinning?
